"Money for nothing and your chicks for free"*

My husband may be handsome, but he has a nickname that reveals more about his personality than his looks: Chicken Hawk (after the little chicken hawk from the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons).

Some of his co-workers gave him this nickname, but it made sense to me on several levels. I seem to have an affinity for chickens. I was moved by a particular video about hatchery chicks and "Money for Nothing" was my favorite song as a kid (I used to sing chickens instead of chicks!).

Just the other day my mother found this stuffed animal that she said was my favorite when I was really little, like under three years old. I'll leave you with a picture of it (I don't think I need to point out how much it resembles the Chicken Hawk...even though I just did!!!).
